Reason #1 (And Only One) To Watch IRL
Sure they're fast, but with the IRL, after about 5 laps you have what NASCAR fans at Bristol call "the conveyor belt." Where all the cars are spaced pretty far apart, and nothing happens for about 50 laps.
But Sports Illustrated has given guys a good reason to watch IRL, Danica Patrick!!
I will also note that it's the only thing going that NASCAR doesn't have. A hot driver. Sure they've got hot TV Personalities, but no hot female drivers.
